In conclusion, Oprah Winfrey’s speech does an amazing job of using the Rhetorical Appeals to be effective to her audience. Her Ethos is established before she even takes the stage to make her speech.

By including rhetorical devices such as analepsis and epanaphoras in her speech, women's activist, Cady Stanton in her Keynote Address manages to successfully convey her message on how the mistreatment of women's rights must come to an end. Throughout the essay, Mrs. Stanton had done an excellent job of identifying her audience and appealing to the common goal that was shared amongst one another. Due to the fact that the majority of the audience were female, Mrs. Stanton had to take an approach where her choice of words would spark a sense of empowerment rather than disenfranchise the attendees of the convention. Mrs. Stanton does this as she states “ Consider our costume far more artistic than theirs. Many of the nobler sex seem to agree with us,” (Stanton 1).

She also uses power in her tone to almost attack the values of the members on the International Olympic Committee.
